Although it’s been a buzz word for years, open banking has not yet truly taken off, particularly not in Switzerland. Why do incumbent banks, insurers, and other big players struggle so much to transform? How can obstacles be overcome, to create an open banking reality beyond PSD2? And what’s the future role of FinTechs and other startups, if we’re headed towards a world of Open Experience (X) for customers?
F10 proudly presents another FinTech Meetup that promises a critical discussion of the movers and shakers behind open banking in Europe. As a keynote speaker, Elias Ghanem, VP FinTech at Capgemini, will talk about the challenges & opportunities of Open X and share insights from this year’s World FinTech Report.
On the panel, Elias will be joined by Roger Wisler, who heads Switzerland at NDGIT, the #1 API platform provider in Europe, Simon Youssef, CTO of Switzerland’s top challenger bank NEON, as well as Dejan Juric, who previously ran the SIX Corporate API project and has now co-founded an open banking startup (part of the current F10 Accelerator program). The panel will be moderated by F10 Startup Coach Deborrah Schaer.
